I was first introduced to the Ohio Environmental Council while researching for Central Ohio organizations to volunteer for. In my search, I found that the OEC's reputation was unmatched in the environmental community, and I soon became a student member. I was given an opportunity to volunteer for the Earth Day celebration at the Franklin Park Conservatory. I worked with other volunteers and OEC staff members for this event. Each person I worked with had so much knowledge and passion about what they were talking about to people that came up to the table, and I know from the conversations that I witnessed that each person walked away with respect for the OEC and their efforts in Ohio. Months later, I became an intern for the Development Department. The staff's professionalism, efficiency and motivation was so impressive to me when I began work at the office, and it has not wavered since. They have a true commitment to the mission of the organization, and it takes first place in everything that they do. Through my experience, I have talked to staff members, Board members, current and former volunteers, donors and supporters. All of these people share an immense respect and appreciation for Ohio's environment, this organization, and their supporters. This is why the OEC is successful and will sustain their success. If you are someone that is looking to become involved with an organization that makes a real impact, I highly suggest that you look into the Ohio Environmental Council and the work that they are doing.
